Brave Brave Men is a collection of short fiction exploring the emotional walls of masculinity. The tone is intended to instill slight discomfort, to push the reader. The mixture of realism and fantastical elements aims at a sense of childlike uncertainty. This uncertainty, coupled with the tone works to establish a quiet frustration, and a sense of isolation.
